I just noticed in SOTA alert that when I hover with my cursor above the summit name that it says “Summit not recognized”. No big deal, I was still able to enter the alert in there. It looks like a new summit that was recently added to the database.
We finally have a day of nice weather in the Niigata mountains tomorrow according to the weather forecast. It will be a good time to test some gear and to see how rusty at hiking I am. I will approach the summit on skis, it should be a nice day.
It looks like there are no JA or VK activations planned tomorrow, so the odds of a S2S look pretty slim. Hopefully this winter activation will be better than my last attempt. The good news is that it cannot be worse. I’ll see if I can self spot or not. I will try various metthods and see how that goes.
Hopefully catch some of you on the air tomorrow!
